“Satoshi” Twitter User Generates Buzz in the Crypto Community, Sparks New SegWit Controversy
An unknown Twitter user with the name @satoshi wrote a tweet that generated buzz among the cryptocurrency community. In general, when there is an issue related to Satoshi Nakamoto, the unknown creator of Bitcoin, the community is always interested.
On November 16, this Twitter user decided to write a Tweet related to the Segregated Witness (SegWit) implementation. However, the community was talking about whether the account was related to nChain’s Craig Wright, who described himself as Bitcoin’s creator.
The weet was deleted, but it read as follows:
“I do not want to be public, but, there is an issue with SegWit. If it is not fixed, there will be nothing and I would have failed. There is only one way that Bitcoin survives and it is important to me that it works. Important enough, that I may be known openly.”
Several comments have been made by crypto enthusiasts on Twitter as soon as the tweet started to spread on the internet. Users believed that Craig Wright could be behind this tweet because of the way the tweet was written.
LOL. Every message Faketoshi writes disproves his attempted fraud. The real Satoshi was capable of forming sentences with punctuation and grammar. We have plenty of samples, both formal and conversational. None were sloppy like Faketoshi.

In the past, Craig Wright stated that SegWit had a problem and that he was going to show it during the second part of 2019. @Satoshi tweeted that the message that they want to communicate will be clear in December 2019.
In several occasions in the past, Craig Wright claimed that he is Satoshi Nakamoto. Nevertheless, the crypto community does not believe in this and they are waiting to have a better answer about who Satoshi Nakamoto really is.
Segregated Witness is a protocol upgrade for Bitcoin that allows transactions to be smaller in size. This allows blocks to process more transactions at a time without having to expand the block size. Bitcoin and Litecoin have already implemented this network upgrade. Bitcoin Cash supporters did not implement Bitcoin’s SegWit.
